ISIS Took credit for the attacks.
Islamic State has claimed responsibility for today’s bomb attacks in Yemen that sources say have killed 126 people – and vowed to carry out more assaults on the Shi’ite Muslim Houthi group that has seized control of the government.
“God willing, this operation is only a part of a coming flood,” the group said in a statement posted by supporters on Twitter.
One suicide bomber struck inside Badr mosque in southern Sanaa while another targeted worshippers as they fled outside, witnesses said.
A third suicide bomber tried to blow himself up a mosque in the northern Houthi stronghold of Sadaa province but failed, killing only himself, a security source told Reuters.
